Kaspersky Lab to conduct training for hunting advanced malware in SG

The global research and analysis team of security firm Kaspersky Lab will be conducting a training course titled “Hunt APTs with Yara like a Great Ninja” on March 19 to 21, 2018.

Organized by Coseinc and held in conjunction with Syscan360 Singapore, the three-day course will take place in Sofitel Singapore City Centre in Singapore.

“If you’ve ever wondered how to master Yara and how to achieve a new level of knowledge in APT detection, mitigation and response, it all breaks down to a couple of secret ingredients. One of them is the skills to create effective Yara rules to hunt advanced malware. This training will lead you through real case scenarios and you will be able to try your skills to catch some of the most sophisticated threats,” said Vitaly Kamluk, one of the trainers.

Kamluk has been involved in malware research at Kaspersky Lab since 2005. In 2008, he was appointed senior antivirus expert, before going on to become director of the EEMEA Research Centre in 2009.

In 2014, he was seconded to the Interpol Global Complex for Innovation in Singapore, where he works in the Interpol Digital Crime Center specializing in malware reverse engineering, digital forensics, and cybercrime investigation.

Objectives of the training:

• Explain the application and share best practices of using Yara technology.

• Share different methods and tricks for catching some of the world’s most famous cyberthreats.

• Pass the knowledge of creating efficient and optimized malware detection rules.

Benefits of the training for students:

• Increase speed and improve quality of incident response

• Develop custom defense mechanism in your own network

The training course is open to participants with medium to advanced technical skills, including knowledge of Windows PE file format and its properties, as well as Yara language and its basic principles.
